Casper Dentist And Others To Shave Heads For St Baldricks [AUDIO]
What began as a challenge between friends has grown into the world's fastest growing volunteer-driven fundraising opportunity benefiting childhood cancer research. Casper dentist, Dr Stuart Youmans, his 5 year old son and some 30 other Casper residents are responding to the challenge and will be sporting a new look after Saturday afternoon.
The St. Baldrick’s Foundation coordinates worldwide signature head-shaving events where volunteers get bald to stand in solidarity with kids with cancer and raise money to support life-saving childhood cancer research.
• From 2000 to 2012, more than 241,500 shavees, including over 23,700 women, have shaved their
heads at more than 5,400 St. Baldrick’s events worldwide.
• In 2011, more than 1,000 events were held and more than 45,300 volunteers, including over 5,200
women, shaved their heads - the most in St. Baldrick’s history.
• So far in 2012, more than 1,200 events and 51,000 shavees, including over 6,300 women, have registered on the Foundation’s website.
Dr Youmans joined us to talk about his involvement and the Casper area event.
